To help you plan lessons we have developed some Lesson Resources based on the above subject areas. Develop your lesson from the main focus found in a lesson resource. Learning experiences for the children should relate to the main focus. These experiences can take various forms that include, for example, demonstrations, role-play, practical activities, story telling/reading, illustrations, song and multimedia. Try to integrate a number of these strategies into one lesson to engage the children. To help maintain a flow and to reduce repetitious lessons, term planners have been prepared to cover the subjects areas. They include a lesson title and main focus. Use the supplied code numbers to access the relevant lesson resource. Lesson resources are designed to give you some ideas for your lesson.
